New York Red Bulls vs Real Salt Lake
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 2nd June 2019
Kick-off at 00.00 UK/ 01.00 CET
Venue: Red Bull Arena (Harrison).

The Red Bulls left things late into the second half in their last match-day against Cincinnati. The former was on the road, and the deadlock stood firm till the 78th minute before the visitors fired one into the home team’s post. The hosts responded with two quick substitutions, but they couldn’t prevent another one going in the 91st minute.

Real Salt Lake lost their road trip against Montreal. The squad looked as if they had a chance all through the first 45 minutes. But it must have been lack of concentration that the injury time in the first half led to a goal by the hosts. Later they converted a penalty to put on a two-goal lead. The final scoreline was 2-1 in favor of the home team.

New York Red Bulls vs Real Salt Lake Prediction

Home teams have had the upper hand in h2h ties for quite some time. In fact, the last win by a team on the road in an official game came in 2011. Also, the Bulls are unbeaten in their last four matches, and in 15 of their last 20 at home. On the other hand, Real lost seven of their last twelve games and five of their last seven on the road.

As such, expect the Bulls to dominate the guests this Sunday, but not without repercussions though.

Expect goals at either end of the pitch this week.
